    ‘It could’ve been worse’ may not sound like gushing praise. But when a film expands on a concept dreamed up by a production executive and his four-year-old son (really), expectations for said film naturally plummet through the floor. Still, while ...

    ‘Fifty Shades Darker’. The clue is in the title. The second ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ film is aiming for the shadows. It wants to be a thriller, where the erotic risk of Christian Grey’s sex dungeon is upstaged by actual danger (of the non S&M variet...

    Gamers will know exactly what ‘Assassin’s Creed’ is; everyone else will need a little introduction to this solemn, brutal adaptation of the huge-selling computer game. Offering more than its fair share of head-scratching moments, it stars Michael ...

    No, ‘Trolls’ is not a movie about the haters with terrible spelling who threaten people on the Internet. This musical kids’ animation is based on the plastic dolls with frizzy hair that were big in the ’90s. And against the odds, it’s funny and sn...

    The young writer-director Damien Chazelle has followed his Oscar-winning drama 'Whiplash' with another entirely novel film steeped in the world of music. His soaring, romantic, extremely stylish and endlessly inventive 'La La Land' is that rare be...

    This belated, unwanted horror sequel is as much fun as watching blood dry. The 2002 Hollywood remake of Japanese shocker ‘The Ring’ may not have been a patch on its predecessor, but it had a solid pedigree: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ creator Gore ...

    This interstellar sci-fi misfire dreams up one of the most intriguing ‘what would you do?’ scenarios in recent movie memory – and takes it precisely nowhere. The setup is essentially ‘Red Dwarf’ meets ‘Robinson Crusoe’, as cryogenically frozen int...

    If the future of Hollywood lies to the East, we should all get very comfortable with crowd-pleasing, cross-cultural action blockbusters like ‘The Great Wall’. Guaranteed neither to offend nor confuse audiences from Beijing to Boston, this is as mu...

    That’s Manchester, Massachusetts, a small fishing community that’s the setting for this devastating tale of buried trauma from American director and playwright Kenneth Lonergan (‘You Can Count on Me’). Casey Affleck gives a complex, brooding centr...

    Clint Eastwood doesn't waste any time: the opening scenes of 'Sully', his stirring tribute to a great day of ultra-coordinated New York City heroism, are so frightening that it’s amazing they're about to play in multiplexes around the world. In th...

Like receiving a pair of socks at Christmas, this cinema is perfectly functional and perfectly unexciting.

 Just another of those typical multiplex cinemas where you pay £10 for a coke and horrible nachos, sit in a maybe-once-clean room, trying to focus on a movie you wanted to see while listening to other people chatting and munching on their popcorn. I'm pretty sure if there was another cinema this close to where I live, I'd never come back. Having said that, Vue in general has one great advantage over the other chains - with Yplan, you can get amazingly cheap tickets (sometimes as low as £5). As I’m one of those people who go to cinema about once a week on average, that’s a pretty good argument for me not to go to Swiss Cottage’s Odeon (£15 a ticket on average).
